Request suggestions if I need to go for HT

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am new here. Have been stalking this site for some time now. Decided to take the plunge here.


I am 28 yrs old and have been having hair loss for may be 7 or 8 yrs now.


I am primarily concerned about hairline. I have started to lose hair on the top also but not so much that I should be concerned about.


I need your opinion on my hairline. Please look at my album titled "hairline"



I've uploaded 3 pictures(pls excuse for the image quality. Had to take them with the front facing cam)


I have been using generic finasteride 1mg and generic minoxidil 5% daily for the past 6 months now.I am not sure if there has been any improvement or not.


Can anyone please advise if I should go ahead with a HT for the hairline so should I give the meds more time???


suggestions/advises would be greatly appreciated.

Pictures aren't great but it looks like you might benefit from 1000-1500 grafts, something like that...


You appear to have a fair amount of hair left so I'd probably suggest giving the meds another 6-9 months to see if it really is making a difference (not necessarily regrowth, but a slowing down of loss).


There are 3 or 4 good hair docs in India so in the mean time you can try to consult with all of them during this period.


Best of luck.
